than a year's worth of work that i put in with a number of my constituents. the organizations, the city attorney and the department of building and infection. and no secret that many of us have been struggling with the impacts of foreclosures on our community. often when we talk about the foreclosures we are focused on assisting home owners on modifying their loans or finding resources. however over the last year in district ten in particular, we have also been battling with what what happens after a foreclosure has taken place. many of the homes have fallen into disrepair and become magnets for graffiti and a physical bliet on our neighborhood. i have personally spent months contacting entities that own a number of foreclosed properties urging them to comply with nuisance regulations. we found that more often than not, that the individuals or the entities who own multiple foreclosed property have the greatest disregard for our neighborhood and our city's nuisance regulations. now the ordinance before you today, would do a number of things, it would one, it would designate public nuance

create a global business center here. now, rapid economic growth has re-shaped the city'surb. shanghai-- world mega-city... homeo 17 million people, and by some counts, e most denselyopulated ace on ear. it's now the economic capital of china and point of contact for much foreign trade. shanghai is a center of research, development and higher education. most new chinese cars are now made here. migrants from the interior flock to make new lives here. but the surge in growth is relatively recent. until 1991, shanghai was stymied. why was it held back, and how did it boom? some of the answers may be found in china's historical geography, which colors its outlook toward foreigners. for centuries, the threat came over land, from the north and west. mongols and manchus frequently raided, and often ruled, chinese society. more recently, the invaders came by sea. following a victory in the opium wars, the british won concessions in several chinese ports, including shanghai in 1843. shanghai reached t zenith of its colonial power in the early 20th century. the outside presence can still be seen

who came out, i want to especially thank the work of all of the city agencies, the work that olse is doing and there's a lot of coordination that goes into this, but for me, what was especially touching was hearing from the worker who talked about his story and something that actually just happened so it's not like this is something that goes back two, three years, this is something that is very recent. i know that there are differences of opinion on this committee and on the board but i do think and with the mayor as well, i do hope we can get to a resolution. there are two issues that i think remain unresolved, i think on the issue of the surcharges, i know there has been an effort to address that issue, i still don't think the effort goes far enough and while i appreciate that this board and the mayor have given more resources to olse, i think that we flexed -- need to consider being more proactive about that work, olse is able to do that if they have the resources to do that, i don't think it's simply enough for us to react until there are complaints that are issued, protecti
of the healthiest cities in the u.s. and ranked from business week as the best city in the united states, you know, it's hard to believe that none of these particular employees had any health care expenses at all. >> that was in 2011, right? >> no, actually, two days ago, that's u.s. city -- >> no, no. >> that's every year, but in terms of data, 2011? >> yes. >> and this isn't criticism, you can't have data that doesn't exist yet in terms of the collection, but -- and maybe you want to go to one of your colleagues in terms of addressing given the change many the law, we know there was a problem before and we can sgraoe or disagree whether the legislation that was passed and signed was the best or not the best way that he we had a disagreement on the board, we can agree there was a change? >> we agree, and so based on your response then and based on what's going forward, i'd like to turn the podium over to my colleagues, kay evans and matthew could cohen to address the issue. >> just one second, i think the reason i'm bringing this up is -- and i don't want to speak for president chu, we're comin
's office to ensure the city departments can't encumber that contract until the board has additionally appropriated funds to support it. in the case of a multi-year contract authorization for example we only allow the department to encumber funds one fiscal year at a time as you appropriate funds to meet that contract. so that secondary control you are talking about does exist and we do administer it and would apply in this case. the board could approve the authorization that is requested here. we would only allow the department to encumber the piece of the contract for which they had funds in hand and for which the board has approved an appropriation. to the extent additional appropriations become available, in essence it allows the mta to order the last items on the menu that would exist within the authorization you would have provided. >> thank you. so why don't we go to the budget analyst report. i believe the budget analyst had sort of a recommendation to amend the contract language, et cetera. i know there's been conversations with the budget analyst about whether this would be a
would the mayor support that, having independent information given to the city? >> i believe the mayor did support that in the budget he just signed and i think it's going be a telling factor, as we look over the next year. >> olse said, from what i understand, they're not going to be auditing these businesses so would you support that they aq the mayor be in support of that? >> yes, i think it depends on your deaf nation of audit, as complaints go in, let's audit those companies. >> independent verification of information. >> when they do that follow-up, that is their independent verification. >> you would be support to do what they're doing but nothing beyond what they're doing? >> over the next dwraoer and as we look at the 2012 data, look at that in the context of how much more work do we need to do, have the results changed significantly as we hope they will, and also get olse's assessment on what further resources they might need. >> i would respectfully disagree, i don't think we have to wait and see that a report con firs many of us already know which is that this is
. and we've also been learning from the experiences of the cities that you mentioned, especially stockholm and london which have not repealed their congestion pricing programs. in fact, found them to be effective in providing funding for transit and alternatives for people who want other alternatives. so, i think this is an item that will continue to be in discussion. we have continued to keep the follow through of the study alive. and i believe that administration, the next administration will be faced with this issue at the federal level simply because we don't see in the transportation community agreement on an increase in the gas tax, the federal gas tax. but there is a clear need, as you saw in the plan, for new revenue. so, we picked up a new revenue, it's going to be user based. whether it's congestion pricing, whether it's vehicle miles per traveled tax, the same way that the insurance picture is going. you know, you pay for what you use. so, we think this is something that we need to stay ahead of because when the moment comes for these programs to be implemented subregionally or
to cover the city's cost operating expenses, that they work to provide a proposal for us to see cost savings measures to offset the shortfall. that is what i would ask the committee to consider. from what i understand these were provided to the budget analyst so the report reflects knowing these are part of what will be considered today. so that is it. generally this is a fairly simple resolution, though i think there may be o ther questions related. it is a resolution that approves revisions to the lease disposition agreement. changes definition of the force ma injury * if you pronounce it like that, disputes project delays not subject to liquidated damages. it is my understanding there is procurement for delays due to weather and fire but not to labor disputes because that is not something available through insurance products. i think that is primarily because i think insurance companies believe labor disputes are things that the project sponsors have the ability to control for. so there is no insurance product for that. it also authorizes procurement of insurance policy worth abou
have my wish, but when you go to other cities, particularly when you go to europe and you see buildings of this beauty and they are beautiful, above the ground floor, they generally have plaque in them and your attention is drawn to them and that's my big problem is how do you make people appreciate these buildings and they are wonderful buildings. and i'm hoping that the owners of the ground floor will figure out a way or maybe you can figure out a way. thank you very much. >> any additional public comment? >> commissioner antonini. >> i agree with the comments and i agree that these are very consistent with the three criteria. in fact, they are the essence of the criteria of the first one is providing housing to meet the city's regional housing needs, transit corridors and my understanding is most of these buildings contain housing in the upper units almost exclusively, it's pretty much all retail, i think the rest have housing and you already said that they're consistent with the general plan for the reasons stated and then the final one was the sustainable communities and what's mor
, there was this interesting spur smart city summit meeting they had the other day, there's a new company called motion law, they have sensors and it refers to sensors that tracks people and bicycles in addition to cars, and they talked about how they're work witching the union square and working with businesses to figure out the amount of traffic volume of sidewalks at different time, they are censored in 18 different neighborhood, they don't take pictures of people, they're able to track people and they're able to work with the businesses there so they can see when the different corners or block areas are most business and i crowded so they can adjust their hours and they were shows how maybe one hour later or earlier, shift in hours for a store that they could capture 90% more opportunity because the number of people that pass by there, and one of the examples that they use which i thought was really informative to our better market street conversation we were having last week is that they were working with show dogs that has that sausage bays on the mid terkt, they were having a lunch and dinner progr
the city option. there are no time limits for the medical reimbursement accounts under the city option, therefore we disagreed. of the remaining findings and recommendations, we're not in urn the purview of public health so we appropriately referred and deferred rather our comments and/or perspectives to the appropriate departments, they were findings f1, f8, f11, f13 and f13 to the office of labor standards and enforcement and finally recommendation of 4 which related to whether or not hra's should be disallowed under the health care security ordinance, we felt was more appropriate for the city attorney to be able to respond to that from a legal perspective, so we did not respond to those. let me close by saying that the department of public health has worked closely with the office of labor standards enforcement from orders of the executive order which was signed in the latter part of 2011 and specifically we have worked to target those employees who work for employers for whom the office of labor standards has identified or were investigated in terms of perhaps not inappropriately,

, but also because it's reliably windy and we think together, the city, the county, the sporting -- all of us involved in cup, it's going to be a triple win because we're spending picturing around all over the globe of the bay area and of this past event and i think the future events that are going to represent you all and all of us in the city very nicely. thank you, commissioners for your support, mr. director, your support in the past. i guess you guys can all see this, the report starts with the last event and i'll do the first couple of three slides and adam will kick in, america's series ri gotta, we got some 60 thousand on the peak and marina green, if you see the boats on the water and the others around the bay area, there was tens of thousands of people watching a spectacularly successful event, you tube and published stories around the world were in the thousands, we had many, many accredited media from some 15 countries and i just don't know what else to say except as an arena for sailing, it's just amazing. the reliable breeze, the sailing right up along the shore and remember, co
in the code. with that said, can we also then -- the city attorney isn't here, but the neighborhood association has asked for two conditions, one, the signage thing which we're saying we'd be glad to have it come back and look at it but we can't do anything about it which is the same thing that happened with verizon that ticked everybody off in the neighborhood because we had thought that part of the sign which i think got bigger was supposed to be within the dimension that was clearly in a photograph that was -- that we saw in the area and i think it got bigger or something, but in any case, i think that's something that is troubling people, i understand we can't take any action but maybe we can have some kind of memo or drawing or something that we can see, but we can't make it a condition. the other thing with respect to the space, i understand that we can approve the project with the 3200 square feet and the configuration, we'd have to make that condition or are we approving the plan on that basis? >> because the motion was written, i'm sorry, i believe i can answer that, the mo

a deputy city attorney and i think that the time is long past to ask the city attorney to take the steps that you normally take in this kind of situation -- oh, she is still here -- that you have the city attorney initiate actions towards court orders, fines and condemnation, this is the thing that needs to be done while we're working, you know, the other attempt at resolution. the property manager in the city says, you know, nothing i can do exactly because i can't get authorized to do anything by the officials in sacramento or the people here, so when the people who really are managing the property there, the two owners on the two sets of corners contact the person in sacramento, she writes back and she says, there's no electricity and i hope this church will be demolished really soon, alright, so this is no way to proceed. now, i would like to tell you about what was happening in the court proceeding of the federal attempted mediation, which i guess i will have to tell you another time. it's undermining completely what could happen her, it's nullifying city and state law and that is n
it is prudent to revise the memo in a comprehensive manner in recognition of the plan that the city just adopted. so with that the department proposals in two weeks, on the 11th, the two commissions amend the 1989 memo to revise the absolute cumulative limits for the seven parks that has them that could potentially be shaded by buildings in plan area and be reflective of what was in the planned eir. additionally, the department also recommends that qualitative material be adopted. not just numerics because clearly the number doesn't show you the whole story but where the shadow would fall and how long it would last at any one time. like done for three parks given budgets or greater than 1989 we recommend commissions also adopt essentially criteria that any new shadows that would be considered within these new increased budgets would be consistent with shadow profiles analyzed in the plan's eir. so if a building came along that wanted to shade union square that wasn't -- or portsmouth square that wasn't consistent with shadow profile analyzed in this planned eir but states within the budget, it w
